Border Crossing

Kyrgyzstan Border Crossing Points

Kyrgyzstan has borders with four countries – Kazakhstan, China, Tajikistan and Uzbekistan. At the border with each country, Kyrgyzstan has checkpoints with a specific mode of operation.

Some checkpoints are far away from settlements (for example, at the Kyzyl-Art, Torugart, Irkeshtam mountain passes), and therefore it is recommended to book a transfer to / from the border in advance.

Double check the availability of all necessary documents. Check out the list of border points in Kyrgyzstan, their names and approximate hours of operation, but note that the mode of operation may change from time to time.
